Since I mentioned on Facebook that I’m planning to read the British version of Quaker Faith & Practice in a year, several people have asked me for my schedule. I figured I’d use our handy new platform to share it in case anyone else is interested :).
A few notes
This schedule is based on BYM’s 4 month calendar. Reading a passage every week seemed a bit too ambitious to me, hence my monthly structure. If you’re planning to read a bit faster I very much recommend following BYM’s version, though. Especially since I just made this one up ;). Moreover, I’m reading BQF&P as a non-BYM Friend, so I’ve left out all chapters that discuss the structure of BYM, focusing instead on the more universal/spiritual contributions.
Don’t stress if you haven’t got your own copy, you can read everything online.
In case trying to read my writing makes your neck ache, please find the schedule written out below. I’ve left in the Dutch names of the months – read and learn!
